Video Du Jour: Bob Dylan

Posted in News with tags on August 30, 2012 by 30daysout

“Duquesne Whistle” is off Bob Dylan’s new album Tempest, due Sept. 11. The video, which takes an odd and violent turn in the middle, was directed by Nash Edgerton, who also helmed videos for Dylan’s “Must Be Santa Claus” and “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’.”

Posted in News with tags on August 29, 2012 by 30daysout

“Austin City Limits” will premiere its brand new season Saturday, Oct. 6, with a rare, full-hour performance from Radiohead. The iconic British band taped its performance at the ACL Live theater in Austin this past spring.

The 39th season of the venerable PBS show has a killer lineup, including 2012 Best New Artist Grammy winner Bon Iver, Bonnie Raitt with Mavis Staples, the Shins, the Civil Wars and more.

Here’s a sneak peek of the season premiere, with Radiohead performing “Morning Mr. Magpie.”

Here’s hoping our neighbors in Louisiana to the east make it through Hurricane Isaac safely. For the latest updates, listen live to WWL Radio out of New Orleans.

We usually post a bunch of music to uplift spirits, but since we’ve done it a few years running thought we’d just link to previous posts, where the download links (mostly) work.

Rolling Stones Promise ‘Big Announcement’ Soon

Posted in News with tags , , on August 28, 2012 by 30daysout

The Rolling Stones are promising “some exciting news will be revealed next week.” You can download an app for your iPhone that is supposed to give you a preview, but it doesn’t work for me.

We do know that the Stones have been in the studio lately; Mick Jagger tweeted a photo of himself apparently hard at work recording some new tunes. And, from the looks of the logo above, it appears there will be some type of celebration of the band’s 50 years – likely a tour of some kind. It should all be revealed next week.

At any rate, you can go to the Stones official web site for more info.

‘Magical Mystery Tour’ Video Arrives at Theaters, DVD This Fall

Posted in News with tags , on August 23, 2012 by 30daysout

Roll up! The Magical Mystery Tour is returning!

Following on the heels of the recent re-release of Yellow Submarine, The Beatles’ third movie Magical Mystery Tour will return this fall on DVD and Blu-ray with a remixed soundtrack and special features. Long out of print, the Magical Mystery Tour feature film will be released Oct. 9 in the United States, a day earlier around the rest of the world.

A special, boxed deluxe edition will also be available, and, for the first time ever, there will be a limited theatrical release from September 27. This new release also features three new edits of some of the song performances, as well as scenes cut out of the original film.

In September 1967, The Beatles loaded a film crew onto a bus along with friends, family and cast and headed west on the A30 out of London to make their third film, this time conceived and directed by The Beatles themselves.

Video Du Jour: Elliott Brood

Posted in News with tags on August 23, 2012 by 30daysout

Elliott Brood is a folk-rock trio from Toronto, their new album is Days Into Years. “Lindsay” sports a winning vocal mix and a no-nonsense approach, and the video fits the song – and the season – perfectly.

Video Du Jour: Nickelback

Posted in Rock Moment with tags , on August 22, 2012 by 30daysout

Yeah, we know: Nickelback is the post-millennium version of The Eagles – a band nobody seems to love but is still pretty successful. In its new video, Nickelback even exhibits a sense of humor, enlisting “Seinfeld”‘s Jason Alexander to tell a little story.

Despite itself, “Trying Not To Love” succeeds as a video, partly because it’s so goofy. And mainly, because you barely notice Nickelback’s even in it.

And congrats to Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger, on his engagement to singer Avril Lavigne!
